1) What materials do you feel most safe to ride in?
Leather

2) What main items you always carry in or on your jacket?
Phone, keys, disk lock, shades


3) What items you wish you could carry in your jacket but can not and why?
Slightly larger items that don't require a backpack but don't fit in pockets.
Returning dvd's, hat, extra gloves or emergency cold/rain gear like neck cowl or maybe a thin waterproof liner.


4) Do you need or want a backpack when riding and why? if Yes what would you typically need to carry in it?
For commute, lunch, extra visor (clear/smoke) if I'm returning home after dark, small tool set, cold gear, or if I'm running errands and need to buy something.

5) Why do you think some rider ride without gear?
They don't think it's necessary, it's too bulky, it's too hot, have to gear up then gear back down when they get to their destination.

6) Do you ride wit or without your gear and why?
All the gear.

7) What are the PROS about your jacket?
Inner liner pocket, zipper arm cuffs, longer cut arms.

8) What are the CONS about your jacket?
Need larger zipper tabs. With gloves on, that little zipper tab is hard as to grab/zip/find/tug.
Sometimes the jackets fit fine standing, but are too snug in the arm pits when in the riding position.


9) I wish my jacket look more________________.
Need some more reflective stripes.

10) Describe the type of rider you are.
20% commute
20% errands
60% weekend back country roads

1) What materials do you feel most safe to ride in?
Leather

2) What main items you always carry in or on your jacket?
Cell, wallet, LCP

3) What items you wish you could carry in your jacket but can not and why?
Cant carry my baseball cap inside my jacket because its too big.

4) Do you need or want a backpack when riding and why? if Yes what would you typically need to carry in it?
I usually have my laptop/books inside my backpack when riding. Sometimes I have a backpack when I buy stuff from the store. For longer rides I use my tail bag so I dont strain my back.

5) Why do you think some rider ride without gear?
From my experience, they just dont know any better or they cannot afford it.

6) Do you ride wit or without your gear and why?
I always ride with my gear because I look pretty cool with it. Leaving it at home would defeat its purpose.

7) What are the PROS about your jacket?
I have 1 leather jacket and 2 mesh jackets. Leather for temps <55 and mesh for temps >60. My leather jacket has GP armor and both of my mesh jackets have cheap CE armors. I feel more confident with my leather jacket.

8) What are the CONS about your jacket?
Its a PITA in the summer because people look at me weird because I am wearing a jacket in 90+ temps in the summer.

9) I wish my jacket look more expensive so I can pose in starbucks and pick up chicks.

10) Describe the type of rider you are.
50% commute
30% touring
20% twisties, group rides, etc
